I agree with the previous log. This in an ODOT disk and is not the original one described. I would guess this bridge was replaced in recent years. -KingFish

Couldn't find the mark. Found a different disk instead. Neither the description of the setting nor the markings match.

photoThe wrong disk
The markings don't match, and it's too far from the road and railing to be the correct disk.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in June 1991.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
  • The dynamic height is computed by dividing the NAVD 88 geopotential number by the normal gravity value computed on the Geodetic Reference System of 1980 (GRS 80) ellipsoid at 45 degrees latitude (g = 980.6199 gals.).
  • The modeled gravity was interpolated from observed gravity values.
